The same thing happened to me. It hung on the first reboot(first time I
restarted the X server since the upgrade). It was totally dead. I had
to force the reboot. Then when it came back up I told it to kill the x
server from the start. Then I realized that I had made some
modifications by hand to the config files. I went back in a did a
dpkg-reconfigure on the x server. I fixed the problem and then did a
startx. Everything went fine. I thought it was something to do with my
screw up, but if someone else is expierinceing it then perhaps its a bug
of some sort. I can downgrade and try the upgrade again if branden
wants me too. I have the time if anyone has a question.
